2014 Hyundai i20 spotted testing in Europe

2014 Hyundai i20 spotted testing in Europe

As Hyundai prepares for the unveiling of the Grand i10 hatchback, pictures of the next generation i20 have emerged on the inter web. Caught camouflaged, the car reveals evident changes to the current i20 which has been on sale in the Indian market for over a year now.  Over the course of the last four months, the car has been spotted testing in around the company’s facility in Chennai and has revealed the new i20 to be longer and roomier than the current car. The new pictures expose more styling details of the new car, while still being heavily cladded.

The front reveals a new broader hexagonal grille along with an even more elongated headlight cluster. The rear gets more prominent changes in the form of a redesigned rear window and protruding tail lamps. Another interesting addition to the design is a blackened C pillar which may be part of an extended rear window.

Under the hood, the car is expected to use the same set of mills that power the current i20. This means the 1.2 petrol producing 83PS and 113Nm of torque as well as the 1.4-litre diesel mill that produces 89PS and 219Nm of torque will be on offer. The four-speed automatic found on the i20 and the Verna is also expected to make its way to the top spec petrol variant, though news of a possible diesel automatic has not been revealed.

The i20 is one of the most successful models from the Korean auto manufacturer, and the new facelift will be pitted against the Honda Jazz which is also expected to be in the Indian markets by the middle next year. Considering how well equipped and spacious the Jazz is expected to be, it is likely that Hyundai put a real effort on the facelift to keep its place in India’s B+ segment.
